New Releases of the Month
Quantum Safe Security Awareness Survey Report
Conducted by CSA’s Quantum Safe Security Working Group the survey looks to assess the overall awareness and understanding of quantum security risk and is part of the group’s larger effort to develop a future framework for addressing quantum computing threats. The most striking information to come from the survey was the realization that while most companies are aware of the risk, they are not yet ready to take action, a fact which could conceivably lead to a very dangerous situation in the future when confidential information may become available to any entity possessing a quantum computer.

This event was the first leg of the chapter’s programmatic effort to discuss and align initiatives with public and private sectors in developing Cloud Security landscape in the country.

The tour was opened by Allan S. Cabanlong, Assistant Secretary, Department of Information and Communication Technology, who shared how the government is serious in its pursuit to promote and strengthen ICT in the country and how CSA can help to push this forward. Alain Dei Pascua, Under Secretary, Department of Education, also gave valuable insight to the agency’s plan in integrating ICT to K-12 Education curriculum and how this can elevate skills and resources of Filipinos in years to come.

Raymond Liboro, National Privacy Commission Chairman, addressed the importance of building trust in the digital economy, iterating that security and privacy come hand-in-hand with emerging technology. This was strengthened by the practical Digital Transformation Framework shared by Lauro Matias, ex-CIO of Starbucks and Jollibee Foods Corp, which makes sense of how organizations can map their digital transformation strategy to work for them. Additional topics include discussions on Enterprise Blockchain, Network Security, and Hybrid Cloud Security.

The Cloud Security Tour was attended by 35 C-level, government leaders, and CSA Philippines chapter members and volunteers. The next leg of the Cloud Security Tour is slated mid-year 2018. For more information, visit www.csaphilippines.org or contact Secretariat, era@csaphilippines.org.
